Homecoming Concert 



Homecoming Concert 2010 



The 2010 Homecoming 
;oncert brought pop and R&B 
on the same stage on October 
21. With DJ Walla hyping up 
the crowd, it was Jerimiah that 
stepped on stage first with his 
best known single Birthday 
Sex blasting through the 
crowd. He kept the audience 
swaying and vibing to his old 
and new songs alike. 

Latina singer Kat Deluna 
followed the R&B star with 
soulful energy and moving 
vocals. A Newark, N.J., native, 
Deluna hyped the crowd with 
her vibrancy and her ability to 
work the audience. Her first 
single, Whine Up featuring 
Elephant Man reached #24 in 
the Billboard's Hot 100 Singles. 
With her dancing and stellar 
vocals, Deluna definitely made 
an impression on the Kean 
community.

Campus 

Awareness 

Fesitival 



Cougar Walk never felt so festive as 
during the time when student groups, 
departments and offices stage themselves 
for the Campus Awareness Festival. Each 
was equipped with their own unique style 
of promotion, but all of the stations were 
charged with one mission: get as much of 
the campus involved and knowledgeable 
about our offerings as possible. 

While some armed themselves with the toolbox of promotions: 
fliers, past membership pictures and pamphlets; others utilized 
innovation. The end product? Make your own silly putty, chocolate- 
covered strawberry taste testing for psychological-sensory lessons, 
mirrored-maze drawing puzzles, and full-costumed character play! 

This year's Campus Awareness Festival was greeted with 
comfortable weather - an ideal backdrop for the campus-wide 
event. Student Organization provided music stationed at the heart 
of the main campus - the University Center - allowing all of Cougar 
Walk to enjoy the beats. 

This year's Campus Awareness Festival boasts one of the 
largest turnouts in Kean history - a great indication of how much 
the campus community 'engages.'

At the heart of Creek Life, camaraderie 
reigns supreme. At this year's Meet the 
Creeks event, Downs Hall was once again 
occupied by the very organizations that use 
unity as the driving force behind their 
individual missions. This recruitment event 
allowed Creeks to 

showcase the best of themselves and what being a member of 
their respective organizations can offer. From the classic class- 
paddle to the tiki, the banner to the letters, and the trophies to 
the photo-memories, one thing is certain at this event: years of 
history and dedication make Kean University Creek Life 
unmistakable. 

Many prospective members found a new family among the 
organizations that attended this years Meet the Creeks event. 
Whether the decision as to which one to join was decided based on 
the personal stories of active Creek members, alumni involvement, 
captivating with Creek strolling and stepping, or a strong sense of 
brotherhood and sisterhood among members, one thing is for 
certain - the bonds were made, assuring a new generation of Creek 
Life at Kean University

Cultural 
Picnic 



In celebration of 
diversity at Kean 
University, and to 
provide engaging 
programming to 
students, Student 
Organization 



hosted the first of many themed events 
for the year: the Cultural Picnic. 

Exploring the music, dance, cuisines 
and traditions of several cultures, the 
campus was blanketed by international 
features. To experience all the event had 
to offer, students visited locations 
throughout campus, each time entering 
what felt like a different part of the 
world. 

Through this event, students also 
were able to receive an early look at all 
the events for the upcoming months. 
This made the event an immediate and 
long-term platform for involvement!

Unity 
Week 
Concert 



Since its inception in 1997, Unity Week has 
aimed to be a time in which the Kean 
community feels most connected. Of all 
the events featured during this particular 
week, none is more anticipated than that 
of the Unity Week concert. This year, The 
Dirty Work Tour brought energy and 



alternative rock tunes to the Wilkins Theater stage; and the 
audience could not be more amped. 

This year's concert was held on March 24, and featured the 
performances by The Summer Set, Hey Monday, Yellowcard, and All 
Time Low. Students belted out lyrics to popular songs such as Hey 
Monday's Wondergirl and even to newer songs such as 
Yellowcard's Under the Paper Moon. 

One impressive new element to this year's Unity Week concert 
was an on-stage light show that added an artistic element to the 
concert experience. Each band featured their own style to their 
respective light show; usually in sync with their music's rhythm and 
flow.

African Student Association 
(ASA), a long-time student funded 
group on campus, celebrated a 
cultural event that took months 
to execute, but will be 
remembered for years to come - a 
Culture Fusion Fashion Show. 

On April 8, 2011, Wilkin's 
Theater served as a catwalk to 
several designers hosted by ASA. 
Among the professional models 
selected by the participating 
designers were students who 
'made the cut' during the fashion 
show tryouts. 

Among the fashion themes 
were classic tribal and urban-wear; 
and each theme embodied a 
fusion of modernism. Pattern 
played a huge role among the 
displayed lines.

interdisciplinary skill applicable to many careers. Serving as a 
vehicle to help students find the intrinsic value of communication 
in their own careers, the Student Chapter of the American 
Meteorological Society and National Weather Association 
(AMS/NWA), a funded group within Student Organization, hosted a 
Communication Day for the Kean community on April 7. 

Throughout the day, some of the top names in current 
communication media participated in the event; each with their 
own contribution to the event's mission. 

Kean alumnus Mike Favetta, a meteorologist for News 12 was 
a guest speaker on the Kean University radio show - WKNJ.

Denef its of participating in 
:ommon experiences, the 
educational training gained from 
group activity, the social and 
>ervice contributions which are 
nade by fraternal groups, and the 
general benefits to both the 
students and the college are a few 
Df the reasons that Nu Delta Pi 
=ratemity, Inc. was established. 






Since 1939, Nu Sigma Phi has been 
a diverse group of individuals 
coming together as one 
brotherhood. They promote 
individualism and foster the ideas 
and skills of each brother not only 
throughout college but 
throughout life. They were the

University activities, promote 
scholastic achievement, advocate 
involvement in philanthropic 
services to the community, and

experience of group dynamics, 
leadership and life-long sisterhood.

sisterhood based on the common 
bond of womanhood. Our founding 
mothers cultivated a sense of 
female empowerment and 
recognition of the richness and 
strength found in coming together 
as women united. Omega Phi Chi is 
a sisterhood that is not related to

Since its inception, the founders 
conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a 
mechanism to deliver services to 
the general community. Rather 
than gaining skills to be utilized 
exclusively for themselves and 
their immediate families, they held 
a deep conviction that they should 
return their newly acquired skills 
to the communities from which 
they had come. This deep 
conviction is mirrored in the 
fraternity's motto, "Culture for 
Service and Service for Humanity." 



Psi Sigma Phi Multicultural 
Fraternity, Inc. and its 
brotherhood are dedicated to the 
causes of education, community 
service and multiculturalism. We 
believe that the best way to face 
the many obstacles that society 
brings nowadays is through 
education. By empowering 
ourselves with the necessary 
knowledge, skills and 
understanding, we work towards 
the elimination of ignorance that 
many young college students face. 




Rho Theta Tau 



Rho Theta Tau Sisterhood's 
primary goal is for sisters to create 
fulfilling friendships while pursuing 
their education. We care about our 
CPAs as much as everyone else 
cares about their social life. This is 
not to say that we do not know 
how to have a good time but we 
have found a happy medium 
between the two. Rho Theta Tau is 
a group of average girls from all 
walks of life with very diverse 
majors. 



• * 




Theta Phi Alpha was founded in 
1912 at the University of Michigan 
Ann Arbor. The Beta Omega 
chapter of Theta Phi Alpha works 
toward a common goal of 
sisterhood, community relations 
and scholarship. Theta Phi Alpha 
has won many awards over the 
past years such as Sorority Sister 
of the Year, Highest CPA for a 
Sorority Member and Faculty 
Adviser of the Year.

international social fraternity that 
was founded in 1986 at the 
University of Iowa. It is based on 
cultural understanding and 
wisdom. We believe in the 
principles of fairness, opportunity 
and in the equality of all men no 
matter what their race, culture or 
ethnicity. Our biggest goal is to see

importance of these three 
principles.

tradition, in both academics and 
athletics, then the black and gold 
of Sigma Theta Chi is for you! 
Sigma Theta Chi has the honor of 
being the oldest existing

philosophy was to promote 
brotherhood, scholarship, social 
mindedness and honor. These

This season, Kean's Department of Theatre 
season featured two shows that were 
complete polar opposites to each other. The 
year was kicked off with Thorton Wilder's 
infamous Our Town, directed by guest 
director Bill Bowers. Our Town deals with 
many deep themes including the idea of 
stopping to smell the roses, it was also one 
of the first shows for its time where one of 
the characters interacts with the audience. 
Kean also had the honor of hosting the 
American BLAH BLAH BLAH Conference 
where Kean's Our Town production had the 
opportunity to be featured. Kean Theatre 
department's second show for the 
semester was The Other Shore by Cao 
XingJian and directed by Anna Demers. This 
show was truly unconventional and even 
featured a set completely constructed 
from styrof oam.

Enhance Your Undergraduate Degree 
at the Nathan Weiss Graduate College 

As the decision whether or not to pursue graduate school is upon you, look no further than Kean 
University. The Nathan Weiss Graduate College (NWGC) provides numerous options for graduate study 
including programs leading to master's and doctoral degrees, along with professional diploma options, 
programs leading to state-certification, post-baccalaureate certificates, as well as non-degree and non- 
matriculated options for study. With an outstanding faculty and staff, coupled with over 80 options for 
graduate study, the Nathan Weiss Graduate College is sure to have a program that suits your professional 
and educational needs. 

Some of the more competitive programs at Nathan Weiss are our doctoral degrees and two professional 
diploma programs. The doctoral degrees include a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Combined and 
Integrated School and Clinical Psychology and a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Urban Leadership. The 
professional diploma programs include Marriage and Family Therapy and School Psychology. Our 
master's programs span numerous disciplines including: business, education, fine arts, humanities, public 
administration, sciences and social sciences. 

Students are attracted to Kean's graduate programs for several reasons, including our small class size, our 
talented faculty, a close student-to-professor relationship, and the reasonable cost of a graduate education. 
The most enticing reason, however, is that a graduate degree from Kean emphasizes an education that 
you can put to work in your chosen career. Kean University's East Campus makes for the ideal and 
alluring environment for graduate study. 

Kean undergraduate alum should also be aware of the benefits that one may have with the familiarity of 
pursuing graduate school at their home institution. The benefit of a seamless transition to graduate 
education minimizes any adjustment to a new institution and a new university culture. Utilizing 
established networks and resources at Kean can lead to a high probability of success at the graduate level. 
Students looking to advance their undergraduate degree and seek a graduate college that is right for them 
should look no further than their backyard and to the Nathan Weiss Graduate College. 

For more information, please visit our Website at grad.kean.edu or stop by and meet with an admissions 
counselor at the Office of Graduate Admissions on the East Campus.
